Topicalities in Foreign Language Teaching
It is desirable to structure the article in compliance with the specificity of the
branch of science (pedagogy, linguistics, linguistic didactics). Please, do not use
footnotes in the text. References to the original sources should be arranged in
alphabetical order at the end of the article – beginning with the sources in Latvian,
Lithuanian, German, English or French (in alphabetical order), then – in Russian. Only
those sources, which have been quoted or referred to in the text, should be included in the
list of references. In case a quotation or a reference is made, it should be formatted as
follows: “Quotation” (Geske, Grīnfelds 2006, 55) or paraphrase (Geske, Grīnfelds 2006).
If there is a reference to several sources, do the following: paraphrase (Brown 1994;
Steinig, Huneke 2004). The principles of inserting references and footnotes are based on
the state standard of Latvia ISO 690 and ISO 690-2.
Tables, charts, pictures and others should be presented in black-and-white (in case
they are not designed by the author himself, a reference to the original source must be
included); each table, chart and picture should be stored as a separate file in Microsoft
Windows XP Excel or in Microsoft Windows 7 Excel; tables, charts, pictures, also captions
and legends should be modifiable. Indicate the exact location of each table, chart or
picture, the title and/or caption as well as numeration in the text.
